Huge volcanic eruptions that occurred over the past 2 million years formed Yellowstone National Park’s striking landscape. Two eruptions from 1.2 million and 600,000 years ago ejected more than 1,000 cubic kilometers (240 cubic miles) of material each, making them among the largest volcanic eruptions known in the Earth’s geologic record. At the same time, the emptying of the magma chambers beneath Yellowstone created large surface depressions called calderas...

Heart Mountain is a dramatic, 8,123-foot (2,476-meter) peak just north of Cody, Wyoming, on the floor of the Bighorn Basin. The mountain is composed of limestone formed several hundred million years ago, but it rests on the ''Willwood Formation,'' rocks that are only about 55 million years old. For older rocks to rest on top of younger rocks is rare; in general, the top layers of a rock formation formed most recently, and the rocks of deeper layers are older...
